iwlagn: enable only rfkill interrupt when device is down
Stanislaw Gruszka [Thu, 23 Dec 2010 11:38:21 +0000 (12:38 +0100)]
Since commit 6cd0b1cb872b3bf9fc5de4536404206ab74bafdd "iwlagn: fix
hw-rfkill while the interface is down", we enable interrupts when
device is not ready to receive them. However hardware, when it is in
some inconsistent state, can generate other than rfkill interrupts
and crash the system. I can reproduce crash with "kernel BUG at
drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwl-agn.c:1010!" message, when forcing
firmware restarts.

To fix only enable rfkill interrupt when down device and after probe.
I checked patch on laptop with 5100 device, rfkill change is still
passed to user space when device is down.
